The third book in the series, we see Becky living in New York with her boyfriend Luke. She is still a mad shopper yet with a difference! She shops for others but that doesn’t mean that her credit limit is under control. She loves her job at Barneys, her crazy gay designer neighbor and daydreams about tying the knot with Luke.
Suze and Tarkie are getting married and Becky is the bride’s maid, which keeps bringing everyone on to the most important question, “When are you getting married?” When Luke proposes to her out of the blue at Suze’s wedding, she is on the seventh heaven.
And just when her mom gets into the full wedding planner mode Luke’s mom Eleanor steps in. A veritable ice-maiden, she hires an uber-cool wedding planner to throw a fabulous fairy tale wedding at the Plaza (no less!) with a Sleeping Beauty theme. Unable to say ‘no’ to either party, Becky is stuck between two mothers, two weddings and not to mention two countries.
This book brought back the memories of crazy planning that underwent for my own wedding. Some of the best humorous episodes of this book are when Becky is not allowed inside her own engagement party by Eleanor’s snooty assistant, the crazy episode where she helps a client to get back her jewels and when Danny forcibly tries to sell his designer clothes (that fall off) in Barneys.
I love the way, she gets out of trouble this time without anybody getting wiser, least of all Luke. A wonderful book, just read it whenever you feel burdened with troubles and you will laugh it all away!
